David,

Here is my interpretation of the Roger's scenario [at http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-arch/2002Oct/0072.html]

The guy in Widgets-R-Us who picked up the phone and then received an e-mail with the WSDL did "Find" a service.
The guy in FredCo who responded to the phone call and then e-mailed the WSDL, played a role of an "Advertizer".
The other guy in FredCo who created a WSDL or otherwise told the "Advertizer" guy about the WSDL did "Publish" a service.

I think the proper architectural roles were played well :).

I hope I'm not trying to be difficult :), but I'd like to see a BASIC WS architecture that does not need the act of meeting two parties and therefore does not need those roles.

Yes, I see what you mean.  You could describe it that way, but that's still 
assuming that the role of "Advertiser" is required as a significant 
architectural component.  It could be for a particular EXTENDED 
architecture, but I don't think it's needed or desirable for our BASIC 
architecture.  I think the scenario described in 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-arch/2002Oct/0072.html helps 
make this clearer.  (That scenario was actually inspired by the business 
need that Roger Cutler described at our last F2F, incidentally.)
